The beneficiaries of this year’s proceeds are:

Pegasus Wings Program – Pilot Training Fund, created specifically to enable inner city high school students, and/or those living below certain income levels, to launch a career in aviation. The Pegasus Wings Program Pilot Training Fund will start students on this path with flying lessons geared towards earning a pilot’s license, with the plan of securing this license by the recipients’ high school graduation date.
MARC Community Resources is an affiliated chapter of The Arc, the largest national volunteer-based organization devoted solely to advocacy on issues pertaining to individuals with I/DD (intellectual and developmental disabilities) and their families. MARC is also proud and grateful to be the recipients of a Middlesex United Way grant that supports their Adult Leisure Program and outreach and advocacy efforts.
